Images from a Golden Age

Works by Anthony van Dyck, Hendrik Goltzius, Cornelis Bega and others are among many now to be seen in a fresh rehanging of the rooms in this Cape Town landmark. One of the rare historical prints on show is Jan Muller’s arresting engraving entitled Chilon, Legislator and Philosopher of Sparta, which dates from 1615. Many paintings from the Michaelis Collection are again on display in a new configuration, and the rehanging includes Dutch items from the Sir Abe Bailey Collection and the historical collections of the Iziko South African National Gallery.
